Storm 0.16 hot off the presses!

29Nov09

Yesterday I released version 0.16 of Storm. This release fixes some memory leaks and introduces a handful of new features.  The number of changes since 0.15 aren’t vast, but we’re trying to get into the habit of releasing regularly, so hopefully this will become a trend.  The release notes have detailed information about the changes along with links to the MD5 sum and GPG signature for the tarball. I’ve also built official packages for Ubuntu users, available in the Storm PPA.

Unfortunately, the karmic and lucid packages don’t work properly because they install files in /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages, which is no longer included in sys.path by default. In the next couple of days I’ll build new packages that correctly install files in /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages, which should fix the problem. For now, adding the site-packages path to sys.path or including it in PYTHONPATH will workaround the issue.

We’re always interested in hearing about your experiences with Storm.  If you have comments or questions please feel free to hop into #storm on Freenode and chat us up, or post a message to the mailing list.
